I love it when Orlando friends come to visit. πŸ™‚

Or… you know.. I love when they just happen to be in town for the Frozen Four and are free to meet for lunch. Hey! I’ll take when I can get!

Hi Danielle!


Danielle is said Orlando friend who just happened to be in town for the Frozen Four and was looking for a good place for lunch. I told her she had to try Cafe Hey and that I would see her there.


I <3 Cafe Hey. It’s a tiny little place in a not-so-great area of town that just happens to have the best kale salad in Tampa.

Of course, after talking up the kale salad, they were out of it. Boo. They did have regular ole garden salad, which was extra yummy with the homemade hummus.


Also, the festival turkey sandwich (turkey, cheese, cranberry relish, and dijon mustard) was pretty delish as well. I’m pretty much sold on any turkey sandwich that includes cranberry relish. πŸ˜‰


Danielle and I played catch up before she had to jet back to her friends in downtown. I stayed behind to take advantage of Cafe Hey’s free WiFi (another reason Cafe Hey rocks) and enjoy an iced coffee (they serve Buddy Brew here! <- best coffee in Tampa!)


The chocolate biscotti was calling my name as well.


Worth it. πŸ™‚

In other news…. Kelly and I FINALLY booked our flights to Cincinnati for Flying Pig! It’s coming up – less than a month to go!

  • Registration
  • Hotel
  • Flight
  • Train

Gulp. There’s no backing out now. Come May 5th, we’re running a marathon!!

What’s your next big race?

What’s the deal with Cafe Hey? They were out of kale salad last time I went. Boo is right. I almost started to cry. (Stupid pregnancy hormones.)

My husband went there last night for dinner since he was working late. He was in his suit (probably sticking out like a sore thumb) and they were having open mic night. He had some funny stories for me when he got home.

So jealous! I thought about making flying pig my first marathon, but I have a final the afternoon before! Although I’m glad I didn’t, I so would not be ready for those hills! Chicago will be much more suitable!

I hope that you enjoy Cincy! Where did you decide to stay for a hotel?

I just got an email about the inaugural Purdue half-marathon this fall. I’m thinking about it. (It’s my alma mater.)

I have a couple of 5k’s this month, but the next big one is the Lady Speed Stick Women’s Half in Novemeber. I think I might try to do a couple of halfs before Decemeber ends though!
I’m hoping I can sub 2hr by then! Plenty of time for lots of training!
